New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.5 allows remote attackers to bypass intended privacy restrictions by using the persist attribute in an XUL element to create and access data entities that are similar to cookies.
